We released Farbenspiel 1.0 on itch.io - have a look!
But wait, what is this game!? It's true, we never talked about Farbenspiel on this blog here, but it seems we're a bit behind blogging anyway. One reason is that Jana is doing marketing for the Indie Arena Booth 2016 at the gamescom and is writing a lot already that way. (Check it out!)
But back to topic - Farbenspiel is a Local Multiplayer-Only Deathmatch Action game we did as a side project. 2-4 players with gamepads gather and shoot each other. To make it more interesting, the players collect power-ups (eggs) which allow them to splatter colored puddles. In these puddles they can hide - while the enemy becomes slower in it.
As you can't see yourself in a puddle of your color, and bullets reflect at walls, Farbenspiel becomes a bit of chaotic fun. ;-)
The game is now officially "version 1.0", which means its fully playable. Just get it for $2.50 on itch.io, the finest indie sales platform there is! But there are a lot of things we'd like to see improved in Farbenspiel, like the balancing, and additional levels. So there will surely be updates in the future! Be aware though that it is still more of a side project for us, while we concentrate on planning, funding and prototyping our next bigger project.
Last but not least, here's a somewhat older gameplay video of Farbenspiel:
